“Eleanor Gates-Stuart has worked as part of a team also, with scientists and computer experts at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) providing specific expertise. As part of her Canberra Centenary science art commission StellrScopE, the team used a 3D scanner to map weevils and other bugs and insects, and enlarge them with detail intact. Such art and science collaborations are increasingly common, for instance the Synapse initiative of the Australia Council for the Arts and the Australian Network for Technology2 has facilitated collaborations between artists and scientists on a variety of projects over the last ten years.

Artworks produced during Gates-Stuart’s collaboration include two dimensional images and a group of three dimensional bugs printed in titanium and patinated in strong bright colour. The ‘re-birthed’ bugs, enlarged beyond their true size, are strange hybrids; neither toy nor specimen, props perhaps in a science fiction film or animation. Spot lit in the gallery this sense of the filmic is amplified”.

Canberra is Enlightened

Posted Fri Mar 1, 2013 7:56pm AEDT

Canberra’s public buildings have become canvasses for art – it’s Enlightened.

Source: ABC 7.30 ACT 

Duration: 4min 34sec

The report features previous Enlighten Architectural Projections as this is a preview to the Enlighten 2013


Sneak Peak ENLIGHTEN 2013

ENLIGHTEN: A sneak peek at one of the architectural projections starting tonight in Canberra.

It has been an amazing experience to make the concepts become real and to see the buildings transform with the artworks. Wow… large scale and in 3D .. amazing.

Electric Canvas are brilliant to work with and have created an excellent showcase for Enlighten 2013.  The above image shows Questacon actually lit up (centre image) whilst the other smaller images are my concept sketches. I hope to publish these here soon once the Enlighten Program is well on its way. The National attraction buildings that have my artwork: the National Library of Australia, Questacon and the Museum of Australian Democracy (Old Parliament).
